This blanket is like snuggling with a giant bunny. It's soooooo freakin soft!! It's on the thin side, which is exactly what I wanted. I have another similar blanket that has that Sherpa stuff on one side. Blech!! It gets so grungy and NOT soft feeling. This blanket is just alllllll soft!!! It's one layer of material and the front and back are basically the same. It's big, too, at 60 x 80 inches. Most of my throw blankets are 50 x 70, which is the size I like, but this one doesn't come in that size. Better to be too big than too small to cover you up! :-) I haven't felt sweaty or clammy snuggled under it, like I have with some other blankets, so that's awesome. Love it Love it!!
